SSC Napoli v Spezia Calcio - Serie A
Napoli and Spezia will meet in the Serie A on Saturday

Napoli will welcome Spezia to the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona in their upcoming Serie A fixture on Saturday.

The home team are one of the four undefeated teams in the competition and returned to winning ways in their previous league outing against Lazio with a 2-1 triumph in their away game. They continued their fine form in the UEFA Champions League, recording a 4-1 win against last year's runners-up Liverpool at home.

Spezia, on the other hand, have endured a slow start to their campaign and are winless since their opening day win over Empoli. They were held to a 2-2 draw at home by Bologna, with Marko Arnautović bagging a brace for Bologna.
